I know this is old but it’s new to me. CNN says that “abortion was simply a part of life” and that the Catholic Church wasn’t even against it. OK. Firstly, the thing about the Church not being for abortion is just a lie. It just is.
But then to argue that abortion wasn’t a big deal in the past is just ridiculous. So, many people didn’t consider abortion to be a big deal so therefore it shouldn’t be? hey, you know what else was going on in 19th century America? Slavery. Would that make it ok?
In fact, didn’t so many advocates of gay marriage scoff at the argument that this is the way it always was so it should always be that way? But now, the same folks are using that argument to advocate for abortion. I’m so tired of this. I really am. Disingenuousness really makes me crazy. If you want to argue something, let’s argue. Don’t lie about what the Church taught. Don’t make arguments that you don’t actually believe. But here’s the thing, they’re not making arguments to convince they’re lying. They know it. They don’t care. It’s not about truth. It’s about winning. That’s all it’s ever been about to them.
